tried to install Oracle but DBCA aborted. I then tried
to open SQL*plus it showing this error:
while loading shared libraries: libclntsh.so.11.1: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
How do I fix this sqlplus: error while
loading shared libraries error?
Answer: Your problem was that you did not
carefully following the pre-install checklist. The installer
will very rarely fail, if you follow the directions. Start
by reviewing the installer logs and see why it aborted.
1 - See MOSC
Note 1073332.1 titled "*/usr/bin/ld: Cannot Find -lxml11,
Genclntsh: Failed To Link libclntsh.so.11.1"
2 - Modify your .bash profile to include the CLASSPATH
3 - Set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable
to include $ORACLE_HOME/lib and PATH should include
export PATH = $PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin
4 - The "sqlplus: error while
loading shared libraries" error can happen because DBCA
failed during the link phase and a re-link will remedy this
oracle> $ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all
If the above steps do not solve the problem, you may be
better off to start-over and re-install the Oracle software.
This time, DO NOT ignore errors and carefully follow the
